Extract from a Tablet to Charles Mason Remey

With the utmost resolution and constancy call the souls to the Kingdom of Abha and invite them to the firmness and steadfastness in The Covenant and Testament. Read to them the translation of the Tablet of The Branch and speak with gentleness, moderation and loving kindness, saying

We have no other aim save the protection of the Fortified Fortress of the Cause of God. We must guard this Fortified Fortress from the attack of the thoughtless ones. Hence we must all turn our faces to the appointed Center in order that the Baha'i Unity might be preserved; otherwise in one year the Baha'is would be divided into a thousand sects. We entertain no other object except the safety of the Cause of God. 
- ‘Abdu’l-Baha  (Star of the West, vol. 5, no. 15, December 12, 1914)
